But things are about to change at Villa Giambelli. Tereza, the matriarch, has announced a merger with the MacMillan family's winery - and Sophia will be assuming a new role.
As a savvy businesswoman, she knows she must be prepared for anything...but she isn't prepared for Tyler MacMillan. They've been ordered to work together very closely, to facilitate the merger. Sophia must teach Tyler the finer points of marketing - and Ty, in turn, shows her how to get down and dirty, to use the sun, rain, and earth to coax the sweetest grapes from the vineyard.
As they toil together, both in and out of the fields, Sophia is torn between a powerful attraction and a professional rivalry. At the end of the season, the course of the company's future - and the legacy of the villa - may take an entirely new direction. And when acts of sabotage threaten both the family business and the family itself, Sophia's quest will be not only for dominance, but also for survival.

Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I loved this book ! Kinda reminded me of my favorite show " Falcon Crest" . NRA Roberts is such a good writer in creating a whole story with different characters and angles that work perfectly transferring you to a different world. So so so good and the narrator choice was perfect for this book.
Greatly appreciate the varied locations and detailed of the storyline. Characters strong and believable. A story that could happen. Nora Roberts proves she can come up with something new.
Sophie. Strong, indepedant, but human.
The scene when teens acted and talked like true teens. You know Nora has been around teens herself. Real, yet still funny.
I am a NR fan. This was a complicated plot. I had some problems figuring out the characters but that is just a problem of "listening". Intriquing plot from my perspective. I loved everything about this book. This is a great vacation read.
The narrator did terrible male voices and it was tough to discern the difference between characters. There were a lot of characters involved and it was tough keeping up with them at first. It isn't one of Nora's best but still worth the listen.
I like to read/listen on my way to and from work...it keeps me OFF my phone and FOCUSED on driving!! ;)
I love Nora Roberts! But this book was extremely hard to get into. Because it was Nora Roberts I gave it a chance and it took a good seven or eight chapters before it started to become slightly interesting. By the end it was ok but the narrator was just difficult to listen to and the story itself was very disappointing.
